Mirage M6 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Where is WR now (2007/08) or even now (2010)?

Does anyone know what's going on with WR this season?
Maybe they cooperate with Peugeot?

I've just visited WR site, but there's no any news.

Last year they announced they will not compete in 2007. They are planning to return with a Diester (French bio-diesel brand?) powered LMP2 in 2008. But if I remember well diesel is not allowed in LMP2, so am not sure if this WR diesel gets on track.

FIRE is 100% right on, check their site where they explain their whole Diester project.

You think so really? Ofcourse,taste is a nondiscussion issue,but i.m.o. only the '94 to '96 models were lookers. For the last ten years they've allways seen as hurriedly smacked together amateurjobs to me,who only got entrance to Le Mans 'cause they were an all french team. Too many times this also-very-far-in-the-back-run deprived other more serious efforts the chance to compete...(i.m.o.)

Nice to hear from WR again. I didn't see any photos in the article, or I missed something due to language. Can anyone call out address to photos?

Also, they have a new sponsor--sponsors are never a bad thing---but does this one offer more financial support then in previous years?

I am not sure I would call it a Platypus, but it certainly looks different.

It has a very single seater feel. You can almost make out the side pods of an F1 car. Interesting. I don't mind it at all.

I like it, very unique, could be a preview of what's to come really.

With the Zytek engine, I wonder what some top drivers could do with it.

well, I think that it looks great. If only its speed were the equal of that. I guess we shall see.

I'll bet that they will have to connect the tops of the pontoon fenders to the sidepods though.
